Quay vs Tetsuya’s Part 2 – what i’m eating at the time 13.04.12

Tetsuya’s


Everybody know what time it is? TETS TIME!

That’s right, cast for minds back to last week (or two…) where we drooled over the delights at Quay. Now we are going to delve into dinner at Tetsuya’s.

Tetsuya Wakuda, the dude makes his own knives…need I say more? Tetsuya has been at the peak of gastronomy in the restaurant world ranking within the top 50 restaurants in the world since 2002 to 2010 and in the top 100 in 2011. Tetsuya’s bring unique dishes based on the Japanese philosophy of using natural seasonal flavours, enhanced by classic French techniques, all from his heritage-listed site. I bumped into the manager who has been at the restaurant since 1996 and asked about Tetsuya’s new restaurant in Singapore. Apparently it is very quirky and is a small Japanese bar/grill where you have to move to different eating stations during the meal. Very different to this place!

Quay Vs Tetsuya’s Part 1 – what i’m eating at the time 13.04.12

Quay

Hello again everyone! This is going to be the first of a two part blog post; Quay vs Tetsuya’s. As you can guess, this one is dedicated to Quay. Hope you enjoy it!

Last weekend my cousin was getting hitched so it gave my family and I an excuse to run over to Sydney to catch up with uncles and aunties, cousins and little rug rats I haven’t seen in a while. It also gave us an excuse to eat like kings! Big thanks to my parents for booking and shouting for these two extravagant meals. Love you! 🙂

We arrived on the Friday and visited Quay for lunch which is the perfect stomach lining for dinner at Tetsuya’s. Quay is situated in the dress circle of Circular Quay *shock horror!* where head chef Peter Gilmore created the now famous “Grava snow egg”. If you are two ninths of a foodie, you should know what that is.

Quay has been one of Australia’s most awarded restaurants holding 3 hats and currently sits ranks 26th in the S.Pellegrino worlds best restaurant list; the highest is Australia. Quay creates dishes inspired by nature and let the natural flavours and textures speak for themselves. This year, Peter Gilmore was awarded Chef of the Year in the Sydney Good Food Guide.
